Mawi Black

Mawi London (see HERE!) asked me to take some pictures with their pieces for their blog (see HERE!), so I went forth and this is the first part of what I came up with. 

When I bought this dress, I was told it was a vintage Mexican wedding dress.  I find this hard to believe but you never know.  I love the rustic detailing, it is somewhere between gothic and hippy. I like to ruff up outfits that are too 'pretty' with accessories. The jewellery I am wearing is a sneak peek at the new  collection 'Pretty Tough' from Mawi.  Each piece is jewelled and spiked, giving it a glam goth feel.

Monkeying about in Notting Hill

Photos by Pete Navey

Although I don't live in Notting Hill, I would like to at some point, it has such a wonderful atmosphere about it. The light in the afternoons is wonderful, there is so much to do - markets, food, shops. Its just a great part of london, so if you do make it to London make sure you Visit.

Rewinding time for the second time

This is the final set of photos from the Rewind Vintage shoot I styled.  (see their site HERE!)
The photographer Rosa (follow her on twitter HERE!) was wonderful to work with, even though it was freezing she made me laugh. I hope you like her photographs.

Closet Lust

Currently I am having some serious Wardrobe Lust.  Although I have   large closet space for London - and I have taken over the spare room - I still am struggling to get everything away and tidy.  It just about all fits in, but then you cant really see what you have because it is all crammed. Plus I am starting to become concerned that I wont be able to fit anything new in! BIG PROBLEM.
I am lusting after a walk in wardrobe.  I think it is unlikely that my house mate is going to be ok with me totally redecorating our spare room into a new closet for me, so in the mean time I am just lusting after inspirational closet space.  Although I would love some of the pieces in these closets I would most like to steal there space (and organisational skills)!!!

The SATC Closets... ahhhhhh!
